Willow Smith Poses in Bed With Shirtless ‘Hannah Montana’ Star Moises Arias
It was the photo that raised eyebrows all across the Internet this morning: 13-year-old Willow Smith was photographed in bed with a shirtless, 20-year-old Moises Arias. The black-and-white shot showed both the ‘Whip My Hair’ singer and former ‘Hannah Montana’ actor lying in bed together as she relaxes on the sheets and he sits propped up, hugging a pillow.
Soon after Arias (who played Rico on the iconic Disney Channel show) posted the photo to Instagram, he deleted it after the negative backlash about the large gap in their ages, and most notably the fact that Smith is so young. While the two did not commit any crime (TMZ even looked into it), many questioned just how appropriate was it for the two to be lying in bed together — albeit not touching nor looking at each other — despite their friendship.
Of course, Smith — the daughter of Will and Jada — is no stranger to controversy herself. After her scoring a major hit single at just 9 years old, last year she released the music video for her song ‘Summer Fling,’ which had many people wondering if the themes in the song (and video) were too mature for a 12-year-old.
